Although it is still a poor country, things are gradually improving in Uganda. The economy is now growing steadily with an average of 5% per year. Unfortunately, too few people still benefit from this growth. Uganda is increasingly attractive to tourists. It has a lot of natural beauty with a number of beautiful game parks where, among other things, gorillas live. Villa Maria is a village, close to the town of Masaka and close to the banks of Lake Victoria. It is a two to three hour drive from the capital Kampala and the international airport Entebbe.
